About the Artist
Iris Bishop is an artist and designer with an innovative approach to textile design, combining weaving, knitting, knotting and other ‘sculptural’ techniques. She loves to incorporate new, vintage and re-cycled materials into her work, making every garment and accessory a unique ‘piece’. The Horsham Artists exhibitions present a wonderful opportunity to show seasonal collections of ‘one-off’ studio designs and experimental pieces, alongside her more classic garment range.
Drawings and mixed-media pieces form an integral part of her design identity and have recently evolved into an exquisitely detailed range of digitally-printed silk scarves and fabrics. These designs combine elements from her drawings, paintings, photographs and imagery of her 3-D textile work. Their colour and image quality is exceptional, each item being individually produced and hand-finished in Sussex.
Commissions for individual garments are always welcome - each piece being customised to fit and suit clients in terms of style, size and colour, using high quality materials and with a professional finish.
